Gender Gap in Citations: Unconscious Gender Bias in Arts Administration Scholarship
Yuha Jung, Jill Schinberg

Gender inequity is still a major issue in the United States and other parts of the world, and academia is no exception. Academic environments tend to be more favorable toward male scholars than female scholars and it is a more systemic than sporadic issue. The American Association of University Professors cites unique challenges that women academics face, such as inequities in salary and promotion rates, sexual
harassment, and discriminatory treatment. Often unfair policies and challenges are rather invisible and unconscious.

The Dangerous Eurocentrism of European Arts Management
Prof. Dr. Raphaela Henze

The research to be presented seeks to develop greater understanding of the impacts of globalization, digitalization, and (im)migration on the work of arts managers and arts management researchers. Different from studies that focus specifically on those that work exclusively in international contexts this paper aims to present current research that is based on an empirical study of 352 arts managers in 45 countries around the world who do not necessarily cross borders for their work. Anyhow, they are in many and different ways affected by globalization.

Teaching Social Justice Through Service Learning in Arts Administration: Does it work?
Antonio C. Cuyler, Ph.D.

This study investigates the research question: Is service learning in Arts Management an effective approach to teach about social justice issues? I used Rice and Horn’s (2014) conceptual model to develop the methodology which includes surveying the 33 graduate students who have taken my Arts in Community Engagement course. The conclusions include an analysis of students’ demographics, as well as their assessment of if and how service learning improved their knowledge of social justice issues in the arts. This paper presentation fits well within three areas: Pedagogy Research Methods and Application, Diversity, Equity, and Social Justice in the Arts, and Reflective Practice because I use survey methodology to rigorously reflect on a practice I have used to promote innovative teaching & learning in Arts Management. This presentation also addresses the conference theme, New Places, Spaces, and Faces: Exploring Possibilities and Crossing Borders, because no known research in Arts Management has investigated the efficacy of using service learning to teach about social justice issues in the arts.
